I really enjoyed my food. I ordered the California roll and a spicy tuna roll. The rice in the rolls was amazing. The rolls were also very good however they began to unravel a little. Not a big deal. I did not like the fact that they give sauce packets instead sealed 1oz containers. As a new comer to sushi,... More

Let's start from the beginning, This place was suggested to us by a friend as a pretty decent sushi place in Ridgewood. I have to agree with him on this but then again I had expected a little better in terms of quality of the food. But first things first. Came here on Tuesday night for dinner. The place was... More

Been there. Seems to be a popular place - crowded there. The menu was not that interesting. We tried several rolls and udon. Everything was just OK, the fish was fresh, nothing memorable.

We've been going here for years because the food is always delicious. Best Japanese food around. Delicate, tasty, well presented, and consistently delicious. The staff is always attentive, even when busy, which is often. Very small but worth the wait. Will not disappoint.

Good local Japanese restaurant. Came to the restaurant on my wife's birthday was her choice. Food was good definitely looking to come back to try other things on the menu, like the Soba noodles or the udon dishes

First, it's BYOB, which I think is so cool (I'm Californian). Second, everything here is just delicious as can be and FRESH! Servers are attentive regardless of how busy they get. I went 3 times in the three weeks I spent in Ridgewood this past summer. I'll be back the next trip for sure.

There is been a sushi restaurant at this location for many years. I believe that it was first set up by the Moonies under the direction of Sun Myung Moon. At least, that was when we first discovered it and I introduced my kids to sushi. It became a family favorite, and from time to time we would sit at... More

Where to start! The sushi is amazing and so fresh! Ken the sushi chef and manager is amazing! It's a small restaurant and BYOB! The teriyaki meals are amazing as well! Great lunch boxes at a great price! It's a must go!

I've been frequenting Sakura Bana for years and they are still by far the best sushi bar in Bergen County. Staff here is very friendly and know how to keep the place going despite its small size. N.B.: If you wish to have sake or a Sapporo with your meal, be sure to stop by the liquor store first since... More
